I am a Licensed Massage Therapist practicing in Old Fairhaven. I graduated from Port Townsend School of Massage with Honors and an Award of Excellence. I am trained in the modalities of Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, Clinical and Orthopedic Treatment massage, Structural Integration Therapy, MyoFacial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Release Technique, Sports Massage, Aromatherapy, and Hydrotherapy.
I specialize in a customized combination of relaxation, deep tissue and treatment massage for the purposes of enhancing relaxation, reducing stress, relieving pain, and easing muscle tension and fatigue.
I have an Advanced Certification in Orthopedic Massage which allows me to do specialized clinical and treatment work to facilitate recovery from injuries, overuse syndromes, and aid in the correction of structural and muscular imbalances within the scope of my practice and experience. I am especially passionate about working with athletes of all types to keep them loose, fit, and injury-free to enjoy their level of activity and performance.
Kathie’s Philosophy of Massage
“Through personal experience and feedback from my clients, I firmly believe in the value of touch therapy. My goal as a Massage Therapist is to share with each client my passion for massage as a means to improve quality of life and overall health for all individuals. I provide a client-centered massage in a peaceful and positive environment, giving each client my full focus, attention, and the intention of quality touch at each session. My desire is for each client to leave each session feeling satisfied and complete.”
